1. On the flight from Burbank to New York, chatted with a lovely screenwriter who saw that I was going to starve on the meal-free JetBlue flight and gave me half her lunch and showed me pictures of her (honestly) adorable new granddaughter.
2. Peg Bundy at the Delta baggage carousel at JFK.
3. Tiny Molly Shannon pushing a double-wide stroller down a crowded sidewalk in Soho.
4. Brilliant genius cartoonists Carol Lay and Kim Deitch on the couch in my friend Pam's apartment, where we watched a Barbara Stanwyck movie and several bootlegged silent Krazy Kat cartoons while eating Mexican take-out.
